A mom’s guide to nutrition, the old-fashioned way.

Nutrition shouldn’t be as complicated as we make it out to be. In fact, years ago, before the industrial revolution, nutrition was simpler and people were eating much healthier. What changed? Society’s need for convenience and instant gratification led to packaged foods with a million ingredients. Now brands are marketing their products as “healthy”, “light”, “organic”, “keto”, and “diet”, yet we are still confused about what is actually good for us.

In this show we will learn about how the foods we choose impacts the health of our family, what steps we can take to live a more holistic lifestyle, and what changes we need to make in our habits to ensure we are treating our food as our medicine. We will learn how to ditch toxins, dyes, chemicals and unnecessary additives so we can treat our bodies and homes with the best ingredients and products. Whether you’re making things from scratch at home, buying everything premade at the store, or a combination of both, you will feel confident that everything going in you and your family’s bodies are healing you, not hurting you.

I’m Miranda Lee- mom, wife, podcast host and blogger. As a new mom, I started making sourdough bread as a hobby, and it ended up helping me get out of my postpartum depression. I realized that I care way more about the quality of ingredients that I was feeding my family than the amount of calories we were eating. Lower calorie doesn’t equal healthier. When I look at the nutrition label on foods, I check the ingredient list, not the caloric content, and I want you to do the same. Join me while I share my favorite from-scratch recipes, healthy swaps, holistic how-tos, product recommendations, motherhood tips and more.
